Dear JK Families,
Happy November! Thankfulness will be the theme this month as we read stories about the first Thanksgiving. We will also talk about how thankful we are for the men and women who protect our country (Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard) and why we celebrate Veteran’s Day.
The children were excited about Firefighter David’s presentation last week and my son really enjoyed his time with them too. The students learned some fire safety tips and about a firefighter’s gear and equipment. The children especially loved trying on Firefighter David’s jacket and helmet.
This Thursday, the JK, SK, First and Second grades will travel by bus to a Classics for Kids concert at Balboa Theater. The concert will celebrate the 75th anniversary of “Tubby the Tuba” with a special performance by tuba soloist Scott Sutherland. It will also feature the physics of brass instruments and original choreography performed by Malashock Dance. The children will wear their uniforms for the field trip.
Parent/ Teacher Conferences will be held on Wednesday, November 20 and there will be no school that day. Conferences are 20 minutes in length and are for parents only. Next week, I will send you a reminder of your selected conference time.
The all-school Grandparents Day presentation will be held at 2:20 p.m. on Friday, November 22. Parents, grandparents and relatives or friends who are like grandparents for your children are all invited to attend this special presentation in the church.
